Unified Basketball, Bocce and Soccer

Advisor: Justin Martelle

Unified clubs are affiliated with Special Olympics Vermont.  We have 10-15 practices that take place during the Adapted Physical Education class and at the end of the season compete at a Special Olympics Unified Tournament.  Unified sports are geared toward students with an intellectual or physical disability that prevents them from fully participating on a traditional sport team.  The club’s focus is to encourage physical, social, and psychological development within each athlete through successful sport experiences. 

“Through successful experiences in sports, our athletes gain confidence and build positive self-images, which follow with them into their homes, classrooms, jobs, and communities.” -Special Olympics Vermont
